"3 of us traveling & the 3rd person got to sleep in a nook outside the bathroom --probably great for kids but not so great for 3 adults"
"We had a double queen which is a two bedroom suite."
"Rooms not well-insulated - perhaps best not to go in the winter unless you like to sleep cold."
"It's off the main road, so I didn't notice road noise at all. There are only 20 rooms"
"Easily found in the heart of Blanding, UT"
